Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Code of Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Code of practice: 100%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the Code of Practice?
 
Description: 100%
Before the move, did your remover give you a clear description, price and timetable for the work to be carried out?
 
Loss or damage: 93%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 86%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 93%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 93%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 85%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the procedure for making claims and to whom complaints should be referred?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Unfortunately, the move was due to a relationship breakdown and the company behaved extremely professionally when faced with an awkward situation.

4 bed house removal from Yorkshire to Oxfordshire. Own packing except for the kitchen which was done by the removal company. A large oil painting and a few other special items were packed and moved well and without damage. The move was carried out in cold and snowy conditions and the firm coped brilliantly!
 
Cost: £1966
 

"The firm's representative who came to do a valuation was helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and professional.
He inspired confidence in the firm's ability to do the removal carefully and competently.
He also listened to any concerns we had and addressed them well.

The team who came to pack the kitchen the day before were equally good. The packing was done competently, speedily and thoroughly.

The team who came to do the removal were excellent. They were speedy in packing up and unpacking at the other end.
They were helpful, cheery yet thoroughly professional.

When we phoned the office the staff were patient, friendly and helpful.

We would have no hesitation in recommending George Pickersgill to others."

Customer Review
 
In August 2017, we cleared our home in Cottingley, Bingley, and and arranged for it to be put in storage. We moved into our new home in Liverpool in November 2017 - the goods were taken out of storage at that time.

"There were a number of problems connected with this move but the transfer of our belongings from our old home to the new one was not one of them! In our opinion, Messrs Geo Pickersgill did a superb job. Our relationship with the staff throughout the process was courteous, extremely helpful, professional and friendly."

The move went seamlessly even when they discovered much more stuff in my garage than they had bargained for. Reinforcements arrived and it was all sorted. All items were professionally bagged up and there was consequently no damage.
 
Cost: £550
 

"An efficient, friendly and value for money service that took a lot of the stress out of the move."

All went well though without your removal team knowing how to dismantle and put back together our American fridge freezer we would have been in big trouble. It came in the house in 2013 just, but we never thought it would not get out the house!!!

"Seamless from initial visit to talking to the office staff in respect of arranging a moving date to your team of guys who packed and moved us from West Yorkshire to Derbyshire. Nothing broken or mislaid. All staff polite and very helpful. Nothing was too much bother. I needed it to be stress free and that's what I got. Thank you"

Pickersgills removed us on the Wednesday and delivered our furniture to our new house on the Thursday.

"I was a bit unsure about this arrangement at first but it worked very well. We regarded our night on a blow up bed as part of our new adventure. As for the removal men ( or rather boys - I wasn’t sure their mums knew they were out! ) they went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. I couldn’t fault them. We have used Pickersgills several times over the years and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Excellent. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"

I moved from a small house I’d been living in temporarily and also removed the majority of my possessions from storage a considerable distance from my new home.

"Everything they did was absolutely brilliant. I would recommend them to anyone. I couldn’t fault them in any way."

A house move from Yorkshire to Scotland.

"Pouring with the rain the day of moving out - no grumbles from the Pickerskills team - very impressed with the organising and the speed and care of moving stuff. There was a good number of people to do the moving. All went very smoothly.
The next day was moving in day - blue skies. Could hardly believe that it was all done and dusted in 2 hours. The team were very helpful and most considerate, cheerful and helpful. I was especially grateful that my beautiful piano was well looked after.
I have no hesitation in heartily recomending Pickersgills."

Removal from 3 bedroom rural house outside Keighley; storage for 12 months; re-delivery to 2 bedroom flat in Harrow-on-the Hill, London.
 
Cost: £4500
 

"Pickersgill were hands down the best of the four removals companies I had out to quote: they were the most clear, the most honest and the most straightforward - very clear pricing structure, nothing was a problem - with larger items like the piano they were clear about the likely cost and effort involved and they worked with my request to keep the load to three containers. They were bang on time on removals day and the team of four couldn't have been more patient and careful in removing everything. We then stored our belongings with them for a year and occasionally had to add to what we had in storage with them. Karen was nothing but a pleasure to deal with through this time, as was Ciaron. We then had our belongings delivered to a first floor flat in Harrow-on-the-Hill in London. Again the delivery team were spot on time, very fast, cheerful, professional and careful. Nothing was too much, despite everything having to travel up a steep staircase to get into the flat. They're the sort of company you don't hesitate to recommend left right and centre and whilst you're with them you feel like it's only your stuff they have out the back. Being a member of BAR was both an attractive guarantee of quality but also allowed them to stop en route down to us and lay up in a different removal firm's yard - as they were fellow BAR members - before delivering to us in London. Very good indeed. Thanks for all your hard work!"
 
 
Team:
Ciaron and Karen. Smashing all round.

"I was really pleased with the service I got the lads that collected from one property and then my belongings went into storage for 2 months and they brought my belongings then to my new property and they really helped me a lot and I would recommend them to anyone who is moving or wanting storage they were very professional indeed."
